a customer of mine needs a UPS capable of supporting a small server in his
office. Obviously, nut is a good thing for him for clean shutdown etc.
especially with the crappy quality power in his office condo.
I wanted to purchase an MGE UPS but it looks like they purchased APC and are now
flogging that product line. Now, I've never been happy with APC. I have an APC
3000 (sans batteries) sitting in the basement. It worked but, it needs new
batteries every 24 months and they get expensive. (Note: if you're in the
Boston area and you want it, make me a reasonable offer either in cash or
equipment trade and it's yours.) And I had a little 350 unit for my wife's
desktop which also ate batteries. Contrast to the Belkin 1100 units I have
running a couple servers and some switches in the basement. They've worked
really well with decent battery life. I might even get brave enough to connect
NUT to them this weekend. :-)
so what's up with the MGE/APC mash up?
Speech-recognition in use. It makes mistakes, I correct some.
